Alastair G. Hendy Home Store in Hastings

 A couple of weekends ago we visited Hastings, unfortunately it was too cold and wet to go to the sea side, but we did manage to visit this beautiful shop. I’d heard about it and wanted to visit for a while, and it didn’t dissapoint.   As we walked in from the cold, there was the smokey smell of burning coal, and it was like we’d just gone back in time.
The whole shop was styled so well, full of hardware goods in neat lines and piles.
As you wind your way through, past the glass jars, feather dusters and wooden brushes you get to a large stove at the back. This turns into a small 8 seater restaurant, where you literally sit in the kitchen.
 Here’s a big block of bread and jam just in case you need a nibble.

Even the lovely staff uniforms look like it is from the 1930’s.
I left with a metal sieve and a few bars of pure milt white soap – I loved it!

Here are their details:
